Tasting Room

The Tasting Room and Gift Shop of Smooth Ambler isn’t just a place to try out the finest in Appalachian Spirits, it’s also a place to relax, feel at home and to mingle with family and friends. We designed this space to be warm and welcoming, one that makes you feel at ease.

When you arrive, you’ll be surrounded by the warmth of antique wood floors, warm colors and a solid wood, hand-crafted bar at which you’ll have the opportunity to taste our patiently crafted spirits. From the Tasting Room you’ll find 4 large viewing windows that look out into the production floor giving you a view of our mash tank, fermentation tanks, stills and barreling process. Located within the Tasting Room, is our selection of Smooth Ambler Spirits gear. You’ll find a vast selection of t-shirts, hats, drink ware, local West Virginia made artisanal chocolates, mixers and the tools to complete your home bar. Hell, we’ll even sell you a barrel if we have some!

Want to see how we make whiskey grain to glass? Then be sure to allow yourself time for a weekend tour. We’ll take you around the production & bottling areas, explain the distilling process, show you our Rickhouse and maybe even share a secret or two.

We structure tastings 30 minutes prior to each tour to accommodate larger groups of visitors who amble far and wide. Please note, tastings run every half hour, and we can accommodate 20 people per group tasting. With a group of 6 or more? Please call Val in the tasting room to make a reservation at: (304)-497-3123.

Tours and Tastings are both complimentary ~ we do however hope that you find your favorite spirit and enjoy your time spent with the Smooth Ambler family!
